Charlie Rangel Calls Kettle Black

I’m a big movie fanatic and when I came across an interview on Charlie Rose of Frank Lucas and Ritchie Roberts et al I had to watch it. If you don’t know, Frank Lucas is the kingpin portrayed in American Gangster. You are probably asking yourself what the hell this has to do with Charlie Rangel, well, as the clip rolls you will see Charlie Rose mention Rangel from a prior discussion lamenting the glorification of Lucas. I find it rich given that Rangel has so thoroughly abused the public trust. The clip is worth watching regardless of the Rangel angle but it is amusing viewing it in that context.
